Accident: Two vehicles were totaled about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. Route 202 in Winthrop.
WINTHROP — Two people were hurt in a crash on U.S. Route 202 Wednesday.
Winthrop Police Officer Timothy Falvey said none of the injuries were believed to be life threatening. Falvey did not release the names of those involved.
The crash occurred around 1:15 p.m., as a 2005 Chrysler van pulled out of Main Street and attempted to turn east on U.S. 202 where the east and westbound lanes are separated by a median. The van pulled in front of a 2010 Subaru Forester that was westbound, Falvey said. The Subaru hit the front end of the van.
The van’s driver said she didn’t see the Subaru because of a high snowbank at the intersection.
